Miss Chameleon: I took the test once, it said I was destined to be a big star in the pictures. And look at me now! Look at me!!! No, wait, it said I was crazy.
- Jake: Hey Adam, you know what I want to be?
Adam: Umm, let me guess. A zoo animal. Jake: No way! I want to be an underwear model. Adam: I almost say to ask, but why? Jake: 'Cause I've always wanted to see what it's like to wear underwear. Adam: But you don't even wear pants. Jake: Look Adam. Every time I see a monkey on T.V., he's either naked or wearing diapers. It's time for me to step up and blaze a new trail for simians everywhere and that trail happens to involve (makes his voice sound deeper) big boy pants!
